How is CLI Funded?

Christian Leaders Institute is pioneering the generosity-driven education model. The generosity-driven model encourages anyone who has the ability to give, even if it is a smaller gift, to be involved in raising up Christian leaders worldwide through free, high-quality Bible school training. Our goal is to bring this training everywhere. Some will not be able to sow back; others will give as the Lord has given them. Together with other leaders in generosity, Christian Leaders Institute funds a one million dollar budget. In 2015, over 1,000 students gave about $200,000. Thousands more enjoyed free ministry training in over 160 countries. Someday, we pray that the entire education operation will be supported by students, graduates, and alumni. This will open up other gifts for the development of more classes and more languages.

Simply put, Christian Leaders Institute is supported by donations. Here are the ways CLI raises support for the ministry organization.

The Mission-Donation Model Approach to Free Training Beamed Everywhere

  • Christian Leaders Institute posts high-quality training utilizing a generosity model approach.
  • While the training classes are offered free of charge, the training is supported by a non-profit mission budget. From these donations, we produce high-quality courses with lectures, quizzes, and assignments.
  • Donations come from Foundations, individuals, churches, students and mission donors worldwide. CLI is a 501 (3) (c) tax deductible religious charity chartered to raise up reproducible Christian leaders. CLI is a ministry of Christian Leaders, NFP.

The Donation Fee Approach to Serve Students Needs

Students have requested that we offer official certificates, diplomas, and degrees. The cost of personal verifications, transcript services, customer service, ordination verification, credibility peer relations and more is passed on to the students as a donation for a service. These minimal fees are not tax deductible in the USA. This gives us a sustainable income flow to hire the people needed to meet the students’ and graduates’ needs. The donation fees for developing nations are even more reduced to assist in serving our brothers and sisters in impoverished nations.

Vision Partners Program

Christian Leaders Institute asks students to join the Vision Partners Program if they are able. We have found that students who participate in supporting free ministry training are blessed in their own studies.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION TO GIVE ANYTHING. THE CLASSES ARE FREE!

Four Levels of Participation: We have named each of these levels after precious metals. Each level of membership is important to us, and we thank you for participating. The four levels are called Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each level has different features of participation and offerings. Look them over and find out if one of the levels is right for you.

We understand that partnership is a two-way street. We partner with you to bring you high-quality ministry training. We hope that you will partner with us as a one-time giver or with a monthly gift to help CLI to continue to spread this ministry training everywhere. For those who partner in this mission, we appreciate the difference you are making!
